Tensions in the Korean Peninsula have reached new heights under Kim Jong-un's new regime.
North Korea's military announced on Thursday that it has a green light to attack the US, possibly even
with nuclear weapons.
The US "will be smashed by the strong will of all the united service personnel and people and cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means of the DPRK," a spokesman for the North
Korean military said shortly after the Pentagon announced the deployment of missile-defense system in
Guam in the western Pacific.
According to South Korea's news agency, none adhered to the warning so far.
